Breakfast Custard



When I started to mix this up, I was a little concerned that it might not be flavorful enough.  I was certainly wrong – the simple goodness of quality ingredients simply shines through.  I used Fontina cheese, as I had some on hand, but Swiss would be excellent too.  I have made this for brunch several times and also for a simple supper.  The biggest advantage for the cook is that it bakes for 15-20 minutes, allowing you some time to prepare your other dishes.    Try serving it with breakfast sausage or bacon and a fruit cup or a green vegetable for supper.                   
Breakfast Custard
  4           Large  Eggs -- lightly beaten
  2           Tablespoons  Butter -- melted
  1           Cup  Whole Milk
  1           Teaspoon  Cornstarch
     1/8    Teaspoon  Baking Powder
     1/4    Teaspoon  Salt
               Dash  Pepper
     1/2    Cup  Swiss Cheese -- shredded
In a large bowl, whisk the first seven ingredients.  Stir in cheese.  Pour into 4 buttered 4 ounce custard cups.
Place cups in a baking pan.  Fill pan with boiling water to a depth of 1 inch.  Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
